Portent autumn woodland path with deer by Gill Bustamanteartsyhome.com: Product
$1490.00In stock
Product description:Portent is a 30x30x1.5 inches original square oil painting in oil on canvas of an autumn landscape path at sunset with a deer stag in the centre. It was inspired by a walk I took near the Ashdown Forest, Crowborough area, in November. The deer stands watching, in that challenging way stags sometimes do, and is ready to lead the viewer elsewhere if they decide to walk the path. I painted this as I often see deer on my walks around Sussex and Kent and I often get the feeling they know how to access places that I can’t get to. Of all the woodland animals, they are the most ethereal as they can appear and then vanish so fast. Typically with a flash of white bottom that is quite dismissive and makes me laugh. Traditionally, deer are heralded as spirit guides in many cultures so I am not alone in being enchanted by the mystery they have. I created the feeling of movement towards the stag in this painting by blurring the edges and making them out of focus whilst making the deer and centre quite sharp and detailed. I then painted lines of perspective that lead to the aperture with the stag at its heart. I find magic in ancient landscapes and this is an expression of this fairy tale quality. White edges, deep edge canvas, no frame needed, ready to hang. https://youtu.be/zgtGSYAud2s

As a child I taught myself to draw and paint by copying animals and horses out of books on an almost daily basis. Then in 1979 I did a foundation course at Chelsea and then a degree course at Brighton where I graduated in 1983 with a fine art degree in sculpture. I then worked in a studio on the seafront for a while making sculptures with an architect for clubs and hotels. ​ On moving to East Grinstead in the late 80's, I began painting for an art agent that specialised in...
